A plurality of respondents (31.5%) indicated they're moving in 2013 because of their economic situation, while 23.5% cited personal preferences, including a desire to live alone, in a larger apartment, or in a different neighborhood. The third most popular reason for moving is on account of a family situation, such as a change in marital status.
